Tell Jeff Witte & Tom Vilsack NM Secretary of Agricultural To Ban Veal Crates Immediately

This petition had 3,672 supporters

We are requesting that cruel inhumane Veal crates be banned immediately in New Mexico. Hundreds of thousands of calves raised for veal are intensively confined in individual crates too narrow for them to even turn around, placed under the blistering sun and are also exposed to blizzard freezing weather. Veal crates should be banned. These calves are so small still with their umbilical cords intact, most are too weak to even walk and are beaten in the head, kicked and thrown into a wheel barrel only to be delivered to their confinement, tethered by their necks to further restrict their movement, they're virtually immobilized for their entire life. The American Veterinary Medical Association says that calves should be able to turn around and the American Veal Association - the veal industry's trade group recommends that the entire veal industry convert to the group housing methodology. Additionally, Randy Strauss, CEO of Strauss Veal (the nations largest veal producer) calls veal crates "inhumane and archaic"" and says they "do nothing more then subject a calf to stress, fear, physical harm and pain."
